Linux recruitment agency listing

Linux is a well known Unix-like operating system (OS), which is notable for being primarily open source (free). There are many disciplines within the IT Industry that require knowledge of the Linux OS, and as such, it is a skill that recruitment agencies operating in this area tend to look for.

Linux recruitment

Good Linux professionals can be hard to find, but thankfully, there are a number of agencies on our site who deal with just this type of candidate. Linux skills are most applicable to roles such as Developer and System Administrator, but other areas such as mobile app development also require intimate knowledge of the system. Salaries in this arena start from around £18-22k - rising to well over £50k for experienced professionals.

If you are looking to hire staff who can take your projects to the next level, then the Linux recruitment agencies on our site are the easiest way to do this. Simply select relevant agencies from the list below, contact them, and they will provide you with the candidates you require.

The Linux system

Although Linux has never achieved mainstream public popularity over paid-for OS such as Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS, it powers many systems in the professional domain, including a majority of the world's servers, supercomputers and mainframes. Google's Android OS and Chrome OS are Linux derivatives, and Linux also forms part of the popular web platform LAMP (which generally consists of Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP). The Linux mascot is a smiling penguin, whose name is Tux.

'Linux' is a portmanteau of the name of its creator, Linus Torvalds, and Unix - the architecture on which it is based. There is some debate over the proper pronunciation of the name, and whether the first syllable should sound like 'wine' or 'pin'.

Linux doesn't come as a complete system - and as such, it is available in a number of different distributions (or 'distros'). These are collections which package the Linux kernel with other software. Popular examples include Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, and Red Hat - which is a commercial distribution intended primarily for business use. Specialist versions such as Slackware also exist - which in this case is intended to use minimal system resources.
